Question on starhub IPTV connection?

Hi guys.

I just signed up for starhub IPTV.
Already have an existing switch for my internet.

However, installer said better to use a separate switch. 1 for internet and 1 for IPTV.

Is this true? I cannot use both internet and IPTV in the same switch?

Starhub IPTV is using Port 2 of the ONT.

Port 1 is for Broadband.

They do provide free RJ45 CAT6 cabling from ONT to TV if your ONT is far from your TV.
